The peer health education/ advocacy program is a revitalization of a previous program on this campus. As peer educators, you will be trained through the NASPA Certified Peer Educator Training. This training will be done in one month, however the schedule is flexible based on the time of the students involved. Through this certification, students will gain the skills to be able to develop programming and events based on the areas of health and wellness they are most interested in. Some areas include sexual health, nutrition and fitness, violence prevention, and much more. These interests will be completely student driven. For example, if you are very interested in mental health and meditation but not interested in fitness and nutrition, you can be a leader or the expert in the field. At this stage we are looking for a core group of students to help be the leaders on campus. Long term - we would love this to be an SGA registered club with an executive board, so there are some great opportunities for leadership roles. But, ultimately this is a great way to make changes in the community and educate your peers on what you are passionate about, all while building your resume and network.
On September 27th, we will be holding an informational meeting in UC 116 (classroom below Commons) at 12:15.
